to be honest, this was my first run against a tree. I decided to do slight chassis loading, holding the car with higher idle against the brake, to keep the vehicle reaction time down and leave at the last yellow beam. Well, sh** happens
I had a red light by 0.0495 sec. at this run, but as you can see in this pic series, I´m pulling away from him. That surprised me too the SRT should have around 400 hp. My car hooks pretty well with the "Tramp" tires for some unknown reason. I launch with half throttle and kick it full in when I feel it hooks well. I prefer to have the tank half full. Almost empty is no good for hook up. Should have a oppurtunity to pratice with a tree....but that´s not so easy over here in Europe. Thinking of a practice tree.
Well the 403 has a 1405 Edelbrock carb, Performer manifold, 268 comp cam, stock compression, mild port work, headers and exhaust. It is fresh and runs pretty well. It pulls really hard in a hot oil and a cool manifold situation. Dynos at 285 DIN-PS, I think that´s around 300 hp.
